Problem is, I don't know which groupset to buy! I have discounted a couple of groupsets, mostly because of price, and the fact that the groupset is going to be used for commuting. So the top-end groupsets - Dura Ace, Sram Red and Campagnolo Record are out of the picture.
The groupset I am looking for is one which is still relatively high spec as it is going on my prized Cervelo, but still affordable, especially bits such as chain/rear cassette which will be getting replaced probably twice a year. This leaves me with three contenders which I think may just fit the bill...
So the contenders are:
- Shimano Ultegra - This is a direct replacement for what is already on the bike, and for the most part has served me well for seven years.
- SRAM Force - Move away from Shimano to SRAM, there is some compatibility there with bits, so should be able to get chains/cassettes etc to work even if no SRAM available. I have also heard good things about SRAM components.
- Campagnolo Chorus - This is by far the most beautiful of the 3, and if this choice was on looks alone then this would be my choice. The problem I may have if I go this route is getting an adaptor to get the rear cassette to fit on my Shimano ready rear wheel! I also must admit that I know nothing of, and have had no experience of Campagnolo components.
Hmm, opinions please?
